Piña-pirinha

Image

Pronounced like Caipirinha (kai-peer-EEN-ya), the Piña-pirinha (PEEN-ya-peer-EEN-ya), in just three ingredients, takes just the pineapple elements of a piña colada, spikes them (thank you, Skyy) and introduces them to the Caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail) via cachaça (Brazil’s national spirit, rum) with just a touch of agave syrup. Clean, straightforward and refreshing without too much sweetness or acidity. And the agave syrup adds a smokiness that should be much appreciated by steakhouse diners. Parentheticals aside, let’s have three cheers for simplicity!
